a story that's eerily similar to the sarah palin's post-election defeat plan. this time it's paul ryan whose future is being leaked about by his supporters who are fairly, clearly assuming that they are about to lose and they need to think of something else for paul ryan to do because he's not going to be busy as vice president. publically ryan and allies maintain that momentum is behind the romney/ryan ticket, but his biggest boosters realize he can write his own ticket. these allies spoke on the condition to discuss private proposals they were preparing for him. if romney loses, ryan will be seen as a white house contender in 2016 just like sarah palin was in 2012. for the next few years, democrats would lay traps forcing them to take sides on measures to come back to haunt him. that's why ryan's biggest boosters are considering why it wouldn't be better for paul ryan to resign from the house. he could write a book. or he could teach at a university. days before the election, paul ryan's supporters are leaking their plans to the press for what they want paul ryan to do since he's not
're going to see of me and paul ryan because this state may be the state that decides what kind of america we're going to have and what kind of lives our families are going to have. so we're counting on you. and the choice you make this november will shape great things, historic things and those things will determine the most important things and intimate things in your lives, our lives, our homes, our loved ones. this is an election about america, the american family. all elections matter, of course. but this one matters a great deal. over the years of our nation's histories, choices our fellow citizens have made have changed this country's course. there were turning points of defining consequence. we're today at a turning point which our national debt and liabilities threat on the crush our future. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment that we need. at the same time emerging powers seek to shape the world in their image, china in a very different way. this is an election of consequence. our campaign is about big thing
serious is this? we'll have the details. and paul ryan hasn't helped mitt romney a bit in wisconsin. now the congressman may have trouble hanging on to his own house seat. john nichols will join me with that. we'll be right back. >>> thanks for staying with us tonight. four days out, and the state of the race favors president obama. seriously. now if you look at it, it is never a lock, never going to be a lock. but the facts are here, in the swing states offering president obama is a clear path to victory. he's ahead in the polls and he's rising. in ohio, you've got president obama, he's been leading all along, and as you can see in the latest poll, averaged from real clear politics, he still is. this is why mitt romney is desperately campaigning in pennsylvania. it is a hail mary pass because he knows he's probably going to lose ohio. in wisconsin, president obama maintains a comfortable five-point lead. president obama is also maintaining his lead in nevada. in iowa, president obama is still ahead. the national average is closer, but president obama has been on the rise there as well.
that paul ryan's staff went out of their way to stage manager storm photo op at a donation center in wisconsin. plus, he says, quote, the packing was proceeding too quickly and the supporters were given the order to slow down and then to stop to be sure that there was still goods to be packed when ryan entered. when ryan entered? another staged event just like his fiasco at the soup kitchen? earlier this month, paul ryan went to an empty soup kitchen to wash two products that had already been left there for him to clean. empty gestures, photo ops, petty politics. and once again today, mitt romney not answering questions about whether he still wants to privatize fema and cut federal disaster relief. or a working president with a republican governor to get something done and fulfill a basic role of government. take care of people. that's the choice in this election. do we want a country that says, you're on your own when you're in trouble or that we're all in this together and we care for all of us collectively. joining me now is victoria de francesca soto and jonathan capeheart, an
there tonight. we're live in old town, debra alfarone, 9 news. >> thank you, debra. let's go to ryan dean. he's along the monocacy river where one day later flooding does remain the great concern. ryan? >> reporter: that's right. right now the monocacy river is at 22 feet. 7 feet above flood stage, the highest level since 1996. it's flooded this road here and also the park to the left of me. >> reporter: the flooding is not historic but residents wanted to capture history. >> never. we've been traveling around all day looking at the different rivers and see seeing how high they were. >> reporter: super storm sandycaused the river to spill out of its bank and put a county park underwater. >> i'm hoping people who live by the river are okay with houses. i'm a nature lover so i think it's amazing to see nature work. >> reporter: a few miles away, the river unfortunate near a historic landmark, the gambrel mill. according to the national water service, if the water would have reached 30 feet that would have filled the second floor of this building which happened twice in the 1970s, including 197
from the chicago tribune. mitt romney and paul ryan made a joint appearance last night in the battleground state of ohio. >> not just picking a president for four years, we're picking what kind of country we're going to be. what kind of people we're going to be. what kind of country we're going to give to our kids. >> we want real change. we want big change. and paul ryan and i are going to give it to the people of america with your help. >> on the campaign trail today, mitt romney is holding three events in florida, with senator marco rubio, paul ryan's bus tour is crisscrossing ohio. president obama visits new hampshire this afternoon. and vice president biden will attend a rally in lynchburg, virginia. let's get right to it. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from the white house. good saturday morning to you. >> hi, alex. >> first before we get to this president's trip north. is tropical storm sandy affecting any of the white house plans? >> it certainly is. you've heard this phrase, we're familiar with it, an abundance of caution. that's what you're seeing from some
, the nearest thing to it, would pass the house of representatives as represented by paul ryan, the chairman of the budget committee, would have across-the-board cuts of about 22% and presumably we don't know for sure, that would include fema. but again, all of the kind of ambiguous at this point, all of it up in the air. they're going to have to come back after the election in a lame-duck session anyway, try to figure out what to do about that fiscal cliff. they would probably fund fema in the interim. republicans are going to insist that any funding of fema over and above what is planned is offset with cuts elsewhere. so basically, we could be looking at the same old story here, steve. >> hey, mike, it's krystal. we know the president's back on the campaign trail, but he and his administration are in constant contact with the fema director, correct? >> reporter: right, we heard from jay carney, we can hear him from 35,000 feet in the briefing room, it is piped in as he briefs a pool back in the press corps back on air force one. he says the president has been in regular contact with the ad
is in the minds of all americans including on the campaign trail. here is vice presidential nominee paul ryan a short while ago in ohio? >> let's today when we get home, put in our prayers the people who are in the east coast in the wake of this big storm that is coming. let's not forget those fellow americans of ours. >> gregg: doug is live in delaware where residents are anxiously preparing for sandy? >> it is basically here right now. winds are gusting probably about 30 miles an hour. gusting a bit more than that. gust comes along and knocks you off your feet a little bit. this is shaping up in this area as a classic storm coming out of north-northeast. it is typically in this region. nor'easters cause more damage than hurricanes. it's called the ash wednesday storm of 1962, johnf. kennedy was president. hundreds of buildings were destroyed in this area, literally thousands of buildings were badly damaged. president kennedy declared a disaster area. because of that and characteristics of this storm so closely mirror that, the governor of delaware has called for a mandatory evacuation all p
's very, very hard for romney. but i'm also reminded of the ryan soup kitchen fiasco a few weeks ago where again they were caught staging kind of fake giving where romney was supposed cleaning pots that had already been washed. i think there's sort of -- >> there was a lot of back and forth over precisely whether the dishes were clean or dirty which gives you a sense of how much they are micro managing. >> that's right. >> you get in this situation where you get the reverse effect where your attitude towards the pao are and those in need really starts to look artificial. and that's different than just campaigning. that's just a callousness. and also dovetails with romney's position on fema during the primaries where you're saying we don't need this, private companies can do it, states can do it. if you're out there saying -- giving the impression people handing out soup cans can solve a problem of this magnitude that's also a problem for you as well. >> i think that's right. underscores the point that a big storm actually requires some big government. you know, i think that's a very diffic
many people voted for his budget? zero. no one voted for his budget. paul ryan and i are going to get america on track to have a balanced budget. he took on -- during his campaign, another big promise. he said he would save medicare. he would pre serve and it protect it and save it from pending insolvency. in stead he cut medicare by $716 billion. he said he was going to have unemployment today down to 5.4%. we're nine million jobs short of that and he has no plan to get this economy going again to put americans to work. you notice there's some numbers he doesn't speak about. he doesn't use the number, 47. that happens to be how many million people are on food stamps today. 15 million more than than when he took office. he doesn't use the number 23 million. that's the number of people struggling to find a good job in this country. the president doesn't have a plan. he is out of ideas. he is out of excuses, and this november florida is going to make sure we put him out of office. [cheering] >> now in 2010, then-president obama came to pensacola. you probably weren't there, but some fol
romney and paul ryan canceled events scheduled in wisconsin today and tomorrow. president obama's campaign event that was scheduled for tomorrow in green bay is also on hold in the badger state. and it's ten electoral votes are critical to mitt romney's hope to unseat president obama especially if president obama takes ohio. so we'll continue our tour of these swing states that are crucial to this election and turn to kristin crowl. she is joining us from madison, wisconsin. kristin welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. when we last talked to you, you were in the throws of battling this scott brown recall stuff. how is early voting doing? and do we have any idea who has the edge of that in wisconsin? >> we have been very pleased with the way that early vote is shaping up. we have had lines every day in our democratic base areas across the state, we have had rallies and events and we feel like we have the edge in early vote it started a week ago and we have seen lines ever since. so we're very e
to be back in iowa. [applause] don't think this is the last you're going to see of me and paul ryan. this state may be the state that decides what kind of an america we're going to have and what kind of lives our families are going to have. we're counting on you. and the choice you make this november will shape great things. historic things. and those things will determine the most important and intimate things in our lives. in the lives of our homes, our families, our loved ones. this is an election about america. it's an election about the american family. now all leches matter, of course. but this one matters a great deal. over the years of our nation's history, choices our fellow citizens have made have changed the country's course. they were turning points of defining consequence. we're today at a turning point. our national debt and liabilities threaten to crush our future. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment we need. the same -- at the same time, emerging powers seek to shape the world in their image. ch
are joined now via skype from the campaign trail from niles, ohio by democratic congressman tim ryan, a member of the house budget committee. thanks for coming on. i want to get your reaction to the october unemployment numbers that came out -- 7.9% unemployment rate. 171,000 jobs added in october. your take on what those numbers mean in the near future and long term. guest: they are solid numbers. when think about where we are coming from in ohio to have those numbers moving in the right direction it think is positive. now it's about -- with the election season here -- who will be able to get this economy moving faster. there is a jobs bill in congress. speaker boehner will not bring it up for a vote. it will create up to another 1 million or 2 million jobs. getting people back to work with road and bridges and infrastructure -- teacher, police, and fire -- to take us to the next level. these are solid numbers, but we have more to do. we have to make sure we have a president that will get the job done for us. host: four days out from the election. you say solid numbers. how do you t
ryan from the great state of ohio. which is logical. congressman ryan, what is your sense of the state of the race in ohio? >> it's very close. a lot of polling has us up three or four points within the margin of error. there are several polls that have it neck and neck. we're doing really well on the ground game. there's--we've surpassed the 2008 number for early voting and obama is taking that at about 60%-30%. that's coming online. the weather has been bad. it's been cold and rainy. it's supposed to be nice starting friday, saturday, sunday, in which that will be solid for us to be able to get out the early vote the weekend before the election. but it's going to be close cenk. i mean, this is going to come down to the ryan. we're going to need people who will go out continue to volunteer and make sure that our voters get to the ballot box and that's how we're going to win. it will be a ground game. it will be grinding it out and it will be close right down to the wire. >> cenk: congressman ryan, i want to ask you about that ground game in a second. stay with us. michael, let me quic
. >> all right. ryan, let me talk to you right now. we know the president won colorado in 2008. he gave his accentance speech in denver. let's look at the break down. we have five million people in colorado. 81% white and 4% african-american and 20% latino which is strong support for the president. we don't want to do this along color lines because the president is the president of the united states of america. however, let's look at the demographic break down and tell me, ryan, how you think it plays for the president there in colorado. >> especially with the rising latino electorat in this country, specifically in states like colorado and out west, the bullying of the right wing is coming home to roost for the republican party. opposing a road map to citizenship and standing in the way of the dream act is not the way to win over the vote of new american immigrants most of whom moved here to raise a family in a land of freedom and opportunity. and they are overtly hostile to immigrants. >> how are you saying that? >> there are people who are pushing an agenda that seeks to take latinos in
and ryan, this is a big government moment, isn't it? this is a moment when, for all that they've said throughout this campaign, mr. ryan, mr. romney, about how they want to eviscera eviscerate government, this is actually a moment when we need government. >> it's a time when pieces of government come together, state, local, and federal. it's a moment when you move beyond party. they're not republicans and democrats in new jersey, they're just americans in need. and those messages, of course, resonate with americans in general. they also happen to be part of what the president and what governor christie is talking about. you know, this is the kind of politics that independent voters, moderates, the gettable, undecided -- >> that tiny number. >> that's what they want to see. they want to see a system that works. and when you have frankly, someone who is brash and outspoken and conservative, working with a president who's supposed to be polarizing, christie and obama working together with a single focus, i think it actually encourages people about politics, about government, and about th
? barack obama and joe biden, or mitt romney and paul ryan? or will it be a tie? 269 electrical votes, to 269 electoral votes. pat buchanan? >> the heart says romney/ryan, and head says too close to call, but i'm going to predict that romney/ryan will win all the 11 states of the old con fed racy, and barely win ohio and colorado, and he'll win with just over 270 electoral votes. >> obama biden will win with over 300 electoral votes, it will be a democratic senate, warren will win in massachusetts, and democrats will have 54 seats in the senate. >> i have to say i think this country really needs a change in leadership, given what's happened in the last four years, but i believe that owe -- obama will be reelected, it will be a close race, and ohio will make the difference, if romney carries ohio -- >> quickly -- >> close, i give obama the edge. i'm going to say 260. win withy and ryan will wi280 electoral votes. bye bye!
, congressman paul ryan rehe united on the campaign trail in this all important swing state, in the race for the white house. we'll take you there and tell you how sandy is affecting both campaigns now just nine days away from election day. stay close.

is expected by romney and ryan and the platform would declare the fertilized egg to be a person, and that means that women's bodies throughout our childbearing years would be under government control. but also remember that one in three american women has needed an abortion at some time in her life before she's 45. most of those women who have needed abortions are already mothers, so they absolutely understand that it's important that every child is born loved and wanted. and there are already 35 states in which young women have been deprived of those rights. so we understand it's on the edge. >> what about roe v. wade. mitt romney has said he would work toward overturning roe v. wade. do you truly think it's in danger? >> it's much more than that. it has already been eviscerated in those 35 states for young women, and also for poor women who are dependent on government health care. and the romney-ryan position goes around even the supreme court to support a constitutional amendment to declare the fertilized egg a person. so they could not possibly be more clear. and whether or
. your question goes to mr. murphy. >> we have seen different numbers on what the paul ryan plan would do in the fact to increase costs to seniors, anywhere from $6,350 to about $200 a month. what kind of number can we look at and say this is what a cut will look like under this plan because of a large area of the budget that needs to be looked at? >> that is the kaiser family foundation study. under the ryan plan, 60% of seniors will face cost increases. this is something that needs to be addressed. under their plan, we end medicare as we know it. we need to reach across the aisle and ensure that medicare is there for generations to come. i was talking to seniors and you could see the fear in their eyes, worrying that medicare will be taken from them. we cannot let it happen. we need real solutions. under the affordable care act, they found inefficiencies and they have taken back away from insurance company executives, from the pharmaceuticals, and given it back to seniors, this is what we need to do to bring down the long term cost curve that is driving our costs through the roof. >> we

[applause] >> how you doing out here, huh? we are more excited. paul ryan is here, the next vice president of the united states. my wife and my children are here. would you give them all a round of applause? [applause] they have to put up with all of this. you know the situation. we are doing better. i hope you agree we are doing better. and we went from a loss of 400,000 jobs and we are up 112,000 now. we went from $8 billion in the hole to a balanced budget. not bad, huh? we are now the number four job creator in the united states and number 1 in the midwest. why? because of all of you. but the problem we have -- every day i think about these numbers and these headwinds that keep pushing us back. and the head winds are coming from washington. there are a lot of people here that are small business people. you are the heroes. the small business people deserve a great round of appla
, romney heads to three states. he will be in the midwest in wisconsin and ohio. on friday night, ryan, romney, and their wifs kick off the final stretch in westchester, ohio, where they are joined by 100 governors, senators, and mayors. on friday romney travels to new hampshire and colorado. sunday is still up in the air. on the trail in florida, romney began laying out his arguments, a shorter message than last week. >> to get us on track to a balanced budget, that's going to take some real work. to get that done it going to require something in washington that's spoken about but not done and it's something i have to do. i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good republicans and democrats to work together. >> meanwhile, we've got new nbc news marist polls and they all show a tightening race. the president leads in the three that released today. in iowa, president obama maintains a lead. six-point lead over mitt romney. that is down from eight two weeks ago. in wisconsin, romney has cut the president's lead in half from the last time we were there. he trails by three p
in dubuque. back to you. >> in about 30 minutes we'll hear from paul ryan, campaigning for mitt romney in battleground virginia my home state. must be slightly awkward for him today given politico's exclusive story saying ryan wasn't romney ace first choice for vp, it was chris christie. so jonathan what do you make of these reports, your out let there. politico saying romney was planning on going with christie and after his trip to israeling changed his mind? >> there was a significant intrigue going on even as these candidates are rumbling, stumbling and bumbling around the country in the last week if i can borrow your keith jackson refrain there. >> can you have it, actually. i don't think i'll be doing that again. >> mike allen and jim from politico reported chris christie was the number one choice for mitt romney at one point, he went to london for the olympics, came back and ended up picking paul ryan. there's a lot of bad blood right now between the romney campaign and the chris christie folks and we're seeing that spill out here right in the last couple of days. >> you know, le
a message for the world that's watching. we are going to elect mitt romney and paul ryan president and vice president of the united states. >> welcome back to the "the ed show." that of course was the ohio governor last night. he and other conservatives, they're living basically i think in a state of denial. they are casting aside every poll and trying to create this narrative out there that they are just in great shape in the buckeye state. this latest poll tells a different story. the president leads by 6 points. it will be tough for mitt romney to make up that kind of ground in the final days. >> sean hannity, this date has flipped from the blue column to the red column. mitt romney will win ohio and he's going to win ohio easily. >> holy smokes. meanwhile karl rove is acting like mitt romney has already got the thing all wrapped up. >> for the president to have wiped out his victory margin by poor performance in the early voting and the republicans are going to take election day, boeds well for romney for election day. i think ohio is going to be a squeaker, maybe 80, 100, 110,000 vote
'm joined now by gloria borger and ryan lizza. thanks, guys. who's got the edge right now and we're getting closer and closer. >> it's hard to say. our head is exploding with all of these polls. but if you look at our -- let's take the state of ohio, which is of course so key to both campaigns. it's hard to see how romney would win the presidency without winning ohio, although they now say they could. although if you look at the internals you see what you've been seeing all along. president obama is up with women about 12 points, mitt romney up with men by 8 points. romney has made some in roads in suburban areas, but in our poll, the president is up with independent voters by about 5 points. what romney needs to keep doing, to get the momentum or to continue a momentum that he had after the first debate is to get those voters out in the suburban areas, married women in particular, that could make the difference for him in the state of ohio, which is so key. but as for overall momentum, we're getting so many polls in every day, you talk to both campaigns and they say their tracking is the b
a debate, too, with ryan. [applause] in my day, he was talking about more troops in the east, more americans would be there -- we should not have set a date. then along comes romney -- my generation has gone on the wings of a snow white dove, preaching -- preaching love. i tell you what, it was just amazing. when asked, as i asked ryan, congressman ryan, when asked, would he leave, guaranteed leave by 2014. in case you have not noticed, everything on romney-ryan depends. it depends on the hour, the audience, depends on where they are. who they are talking to. it depends on how they feel. it just depends. it depends. i cannot depend on a president for whom everything depends. my grandfather's name was ambrose finnegan, he used to say -- joey, beware of the converted. qhoa, these guys, a real epiphany. on issues related to women -- [applause] by the way, joyce, i cannot tell you how impressed i am with joyce. this is a woman who feels it in her bones. this is a woman who understands it. on the issue of women, the issue of women, they could not bring themselves, they could not bring t
